Football - Decisions for Lambert

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert faces defensive issues ahead of his side's Barclays Premier League clash at Fulham on Sunday.

Skipper Ron Vlaar is doubtful with a calf injury that forced him off in the midweek win at Southampton, whilst Antonio Luna is struggling with a groin problem, added to which Joe Bennett continues to recover from a back issue that has kept him out since the end of September.

Lambert must also decide whether to recall Christian Benteke to the starting line-up after relegating the striker to a sub's role at the St Mary's Stadium.
